Arsenal fans are split on the latest transfer news, as reports claim they are eyeing World Cup ace Domagoj Vida.
According to reports, Unai Emery is targeting a £25m bid for Croatia international Vida.
The report claims Emery does not rate Shkodran Mustafi, and will sell either the German defender or Danny Welbeck to raise funds for the Vida deal.
The links should definitely be taken with a pinch of salt, as the feisty centre back has already been linked with multiple Premier League clubs.
Therefore, it could easily be the player’s agent touting him around off the back of a good tournament in Russia, but plenty of fans have been giving their verdict anyway.
Arsenal have six first team centre backs, so they would absolutely have to sell one to make room for the tough tackling Vida, but it does seem rather bizarre to dump a 26 year-old World Cup winner (Mustafi) for a 29 year-old who has never played in one of Europe’s top leagues.

In the World Cup he stealed everyone attention, but not in the Prem i think.

Great!! Another pony CB to join the list of ones we already have. Kos with only 1 leg is still the best CB we have at the club
